LA MARATHON Runners Race from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica Beach

We had a lot of fun cheering on the runners from the 30th Annual LA Marathon on Sunday.

The race course took runners from Dodger Stadium through Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and ended in Santa Monica. From the stadium to the sea, the 26.2 Mile course was filled with many excited supporters dancing and cheering-on all the runners.

A month ago, these fine men came together for a common cause. As part of the Slumdog Facialhair team, they committed their faces as part of Movember 2013.  We checked back in with them and are happy to report their “moustaches” are coming along great!

As their month-long commitment comes to an end later this week, they will have raised over $14,000 in support of men’s health.

Congratulations to them and all who participated in Movember!

Check out what they looked like when it all began: http://bellavitaphoto.com/blog/?p=646
